High school – Engaging students in interactive sessions is the best way to help them learn what they need to know about Palestine. Encouraging young men and women to ask questions helps them to direct their own learning about their connection to the Holy Land, its history and how they can become effective activists, even at their young age. AMP was able to bring these interactive, educational sessions to more than 1,200 students from coast to coast in 2012, and plans to double that number in 2013, inch’ Allah.
SJP/MSA work – The future of Palestine solidarity work starts on America’s campuses and AMP fully supports campus activism. AMP Chairman Dr. Hatem Bazian co-founded the very first SJP chapter in Berkeley nearly two decades ago; they now exist throughout the world. Through funding and helping to organize the many SJP events that take place nationally, we can ensure that the cause of Palestine is in the forefront of campus communities across the country.
California coalition – Because of the many SJP successes in California universities, Zionist organizations have filed federal Title VI complaints and civil rights lawsuits against various universities and instructors within the system. They also harass and attack individual SJP and MSA chapters, all in attempts to intimidate activists and shut down constitutionally protected free speech activities not just in California but across the country. A coalition of groups, including AMP, has pushed back by documenting and exposing these Zionist tactics, publishing articles and statements and interacting with university President Mark Yudof and state representatives.
